Do you get ideas from your dreams?

And if so, are they whole stories or do you just include part of it in your writing?

I very much like my dreams, they can be more fantastic than any book I've ever read and this is why I try to keep a dream diary. My best ideas came up through my dreams.

Just yesterday, I had this amazing dream. Right before I felt the morning come closer into my conscious, I realized that I need to remember everything quick so I can note it down. Once you waited more than a few seconds with your eyes open, most of it will be gone. This dream was so vivid and quite interesting, that I decided to use it for my next book (as I was looking for ideas anyway).

Luckily, it fits perfectly to the idea I had and gives it even more momentum and also more concrete content. Have you experienced something like this?
